It's Actually Not All About Sean
18 November 2013 | by jeffrey0013See all my reviews

Sean Saves the World sometimes gets it right. Sean Hayes occasionally delivers the great one-liner in his portrayal of Sean, a single father left in charge of his daughter Ellie (Samantha Isler) when his ex-wife moved to New York. His character is not as off the wall as it was in Will and Grace. He's not as overly dramatic and excitable as he once was. Still has the same flare, just not as loud. I agree with another reviewer that the highlight of the show is Thomas Lennon who plays Sean's new boss, Max. Since seeing Lennon in Seventeen Again and tiny parts like Doug in I Love You, Man I've been amazed at his comedic ability. He's like Jane Lynch, a great character actor that can make any part his own, even if the script is a tad weak. With him on board I see potential in this show.
